    Today is my birthday…to which I say a very non emotional woo-hoo. Not much happy in the birthday. I credit this to my ever ticking biological clock and our still empty nest. My increasing age is an ever present reminder that if we plan to raise children before we retire we should hurry up and do so. So, in order to cheer myself up, I am going to give YOU a present! (I always enjoy giving presents more than receiving them.) I am going to give one lucky reader one of my little boxy bags. This one is chocolate brown and blue, one of my favorite combinations. To be entered into the drawing all you have to do is leave a comment. You could share a humorous story, an embarrassing moment, a kind word, or just say hello! I will leave the comments open until midnight (CST) Friday night, then announce the lucky winner’s name on Saturday. Only one entry per person, please.

  • Well, Happy 27th…….again. 😉

    Glad to hear you are choosing not to stay down. I told your husband a humorous(sp) story about how our friends found out about a surprise after his ‘snip snip’ operation. All will turn out well with you guys. Keep the Faith.

    P.S. We like bags

  • Happy Birthday Heather!

    I am a member of Benjamin’s Fontbonne Options class and also a member of his study group. Benjamin talks about you all the time and I feel like I already know you. I think your bags are really neat and I have told Benjamin to bring them in to the class so that he can show everyone. Your site is very charming and you have some very interesting topics and recipes for the perfect coffee! I think you should welcome the new year and celebrate being able to receive the many blessings that will come forth this year. I can understand your empty nest delima but soon it will be filled and you will appreciate the gift of having a child to raise because of your strong faith, efforts and determination. All things happen in the Lord’s time so you can relax and be faithful. Have a wonderful day!
